Sample Invitation Letter for Australia Tourist Visa 676

When planing to visit friends or family in Australia you may need a travel visa depending on what country you are from. If you are reading this page, I assume you already know that you need a visa, or you already know that your guest would need a Tourist visa subclass 676. One of the documents that is usually required is an invitation letter from the host. There is no hard and fast rule about writing an invitation letter for visa purpose. It should be formatted like any other letter, however it need to contain all the relevant information about the host and the guest.

You may then wonder what this information should be. Before listing the information, it is necessary for the writer of the letter to understand that this letter is simply to support the claim of your guest that they are coming to Australia for what they have already (or will be stating) in the Visa Application Form. The visa officer want to know who the host is, who the guest is, when the vacation would start and end and how the guest will fund the vacation.

Generally, there are 2 types of letters of invitation for visa purposes. The one addressed to the Visa Officer or the one addressed to the guest. They are equally acceptable as long as they contain the required information. In many cases and in my opinion (especially when the guest is from a developing country) it is wise to notarize the document. However if this will be so much of a pain, then you can use the letter without notarizing it.
